In the attached document the text is alligned incorrectly in vertical boxes in the bottom of the document.

Bugzilla is "issue based", so a single issue must be pointed at, after a search for not being a duplicate. And that's vertical alignment here.
Bugzilla is not "document based", like "this document doesn't display nice" or "it's also slow". Please search see other bugs, there are multiple perf. bugs for 5.3 like Bug 108574 for Writer and few for Calc.

As for vertical alignment, this is text box in MSO where text is rotated in text box and then centered in paragraph. 
LO somehow takes "centered in paragraph" as horizontal in frame, instead of setting vertical for vertical text.
Comment 10 Mikhail Novosyolov 2017-08-23 21:30:11 UTC
Timur, that's great, but there is lack of a manual which would describe how to investigate the reason of the issue.

Text box text alignment is now looking quite similar to Word in:

I guess this can be set to WFM thanks to all the recent BTLR work from Miklos.
